Amp setting for Edge sound/tone

I was looking around for some good setting to emulate The Edge sound and I decided to start this thread because I've not found anything truly useful.

I own a valvetronix from vox (AD30VT), and two guitars (hambucker and single coil). I would like to find 2 or 3 settings to save on my ampli and to be used as a startpoint to work with pedals or rack units (I,ve got a complete korg a3 with foot controller/wha/Volume pedals and spc01 card).

I have found a good setting for distort hambucher (AC30TB selector, distortion 3 o'clock, volume 1 0'clock, low bass, high treble, middle 12 o'clock), I use it for UTEOTW (bridge pickup) and it sounds great!

But I still need a clean sound for hambucker, and even a clean and a distort sound for single coil.

Now, let me show you what I've found.

These are from valvetronix.net

Valvetronix u2 : 8 presets

Clean : Pride (in the name of love) - U2 • VOX AD60VT • AD120VT • Blue serie

But it's impossible to change the ampli tone for each song to play!!!!!

These are from a user...I can' remember his name

ImageShack - Hosting :: cleanstratij4.jpg Clear Strat

ImageShack - Hosting :: diststratfs7.jpg Dist Strat

ImageShack - Hosting :: cleanlespaulna5.jpg Clean LesPaul

ImageShack - Hosting :: distlespaulhz9.jpg Dist LesPaul

He uses an higain ampli for the dist strat sound, I'd prefer to use ac30tb for all tones.

Anyone would like to post his ampli settings (valvetronix, other vox, other brand)????

We could make this thread a sort of database on this argument, why not!

Hi everybody

Thanks to Brian_C for the private message
...unfortunately I can't get into that site, they let in only people with a non commercial email (gmail, yahoo and so on are not good)...and I haven't got it and don't know how to have one

I've gone there sometimes..and it has been very useful to me.
Most of my delay settings comes from there.

Have you got a korg a3?
If so I tell you what i'm tryng to do...

I've made a playlist of u2 backing tracks...actually 26 tunes, all live with vocals from // U2, The Who, Stereophonics & Coldplay Guitar & Piano Backing Tracks //. They are in this form
example: "71-Sunday Bloody Sunday"
where the number is the number of the first A3 patch I'have to call to play that song.

I save all the settings on the korg unit and I've got a rom card (64 Kbyte) where to save them all when I'll need to change the Korg internal battery.

In this way I can easely play u2 in my living room just using the guitar, the ampli and the A3 with its pedals...no more cables around the house (I've bought even a cheap guitar wireless system), no more little effects boxes on the floor. In 20 seconds I can start to play (even just one song, I just have to push its pedal and call the right setting from the A3's memory) and in the same time I can remove all and seat on the couch.

The A3 is a powerful unit and it sounds great, you can play almost all u2 songs with it (and many others....like pink floyd, guns n roses...there are a lot of cards you can download from korgaseries.org: home and load into the A3 using a midi cable).

Now I'm looking for one or two good ampli settings to save on the AD30, they have to be my sound bases for all the u2 songs I play. I hope (and I will) to find a clear and a distorted tone for the strato and a distorted tone for my humbucker guitar.

I will share these setting as a midi file as soon as I finish the job...in the meantime I hope someone can share some setting with me.

I've seen that others tried to start a "share your korg A3 patches" thread on this site with no results...I think people are too jealous of their settings...afterall playing guitar is only a funny game for most of us...a passion for music...

...so let's rock

I play just for fun and I fully agree with what you say! I found only around the presets for Mysterious Ways numb and zoo station ... ah ... I forgot I don't have the midi cable to transfer files. syex from PC to korg and then politely ask you if you can post presets in writing (eg number of patches or the chain and settings of various parameters) or if you know any program to view files SysEx! Thank you so much! p.s sorry for my english!

7cs,
Your videos seem right on the money. Could you please send me your text file of settings? I just picked up an A3 and the spc-01 card.
